What is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia is an age-related vision condition that causes near objects to appear blurry. It typically starts in a person’s 40’s, when the lens of the eye begins to stiffen and lose flexibility. This makes it difficult to focus on nearby objects.

Presbyopia can significantly impact your quality of life. Regular daily activities like reading books, instruction manuals and food labels, scrolling through your phone, threading a needle and other close-up tasks can become daunting.

The good news is, with the help of Woodbury Eye Clinic, this common vision condition can be effectively managed, so you won’t have to compromise on your quality of life.

My 91-year-old grandmother had a stroke 9 months ago and lost a lot of her peripheral vision on her ... right side. Dr. Cole and his team have assisted her with slowly regaining some of that vision. The goal is not to get her driving again, but rather to just improve that peripheral vision so she can ambulate safely around her assisted living building. Not only has her vision improved, but so has her confidence and positive outlook. Having been very close to my grandmother for the majority of my life, I have watched how seniors are often treated as though there is no upside to aging. That is not the case at Woodbury EyeCare. In fact, we moved all of her eyecare from a different clinic that felt like a factory to Woodbury EyeCare because she has been treated so well. Thank you to everyone there for the outstanding work! We are very grateful!

This was my first experience at the Woodbury Eye Clinic. Dr. Nguyen made me feel comfortable from t... he get-go. She is extremely knowledgeable and takes time to listen to (and answer) any questions that you might have. I will definitely return to this clinic again for my yearly eye exam!

I don’t know where I would be if I hadn’t been referred to Dr. Cole. It has been life changing a... fter my TBI. I can’t thank him and his team enough.

Great staff and Dr Cole was very friendly. They were able to get me in on a last minute emergency ap... pointment because I had something in my eye. Felt instant relief and was relieved they were able to accommodate me and get me in right away!

From the time I walked in, everyone was friendly and professional, I felt from the beginning of the ... appointment that I was in good hands and that if anyone can help me through my concussion, I'm in the best place.

I came here after being with another provider for years. I felt the other places service and experie... nce was declining, so based on reviews I tried Woodbury Eye Clinic. I was not disappointed. The service and care by everyone was amazing. Dr. Nguyen was phenomenal!! I’ve already recommended her to two friends.

Great staff. Excellent eye care in fulfilling my prescription. They had great knowledge of their pro... duct and gave excellent customer service.

Edited from one star to five stars based on subsequent experience. I had an issue after my first pho... ne call getting them to work with my insurance, but they very quickly did. Most importantly, I have seen incredible progress after just five visits. I went from having blurry vision (after a concussion) 30% of the time to not at all. I also noticed a huge improvement in my ability to focus and work. I was fatigued before, and now I have tons of energy. Everyone has noticed that I'm feeling better. If you are having any issues, definitely try vision therapy, and definitely do the exercises as prescribed.

Why doesn't EVERY eye doctor test for all the things Dr. Cole tests for? This clinic goes above and... beyond any "normal" eye exam and really addresses the whole person by helping correct issues with not only vision, but with how the brain is visually comprehending the world around it. LOVE it!

Presbyopia Diagnosis Treatment FAQs

What is presbyopia treatment?

Presbyopia treatment corrects age-related farsightedness to enable you to see close-up objects, such as books and electronic screens more clearly. Treatments include:

  • Eyeglasses
  • Contact lenses
  • Laser surgery
  • Lens implants
Can presbyopia be cured?

Currently, there is no cure. The good news is that our optometrists can recommend a variety of treatment options to help you see your best, from near to far.

How do I know if I have presbyopia?

If you’re over 40 and struggle with any of the following, you may have presbyopia.

  • Holding a book or a screen at arm’s length to see it more clearly
  • Needing larger print or font size to read
  • Blurry vision while reading
  • Difficulty reading in dim light
  • Eye strain and headaches when focusing on near objects

If you have one or more of these signs, schedule an eye exam and ask us about glasses, contact lenses, or other presbyopia treatment options.

Are bifocals right for me?

If it’s hard for you to read and to see things at a distance, bifocals may be your perfect solution. With bifocals, you can get two prescriptions in one. One corrects farsightedness and the other corrects nearsightedness. We offer several different types of bifocal lenses to suit your personal preference.
